I'm trying to create a VPN solution for resiential client, I have a Linksys e2000 with dd-wrt install, I have configured the VPN server and I'm trying to connect using the native windows VPN client.The connection hangs with"verify user name and passowrd" then gets an error 619. The config on the router and client PC are both straight forward but I don't see what I'm missing.

Sometimes Windows Firewall or 3rd party anti-virus/spyware solutions block access to the VPN ports. Disable them temporarily to check if that's the issue.

1. ID \ Password has been verified several times
2. Not sure if this is what you need, Client software "Data Encryption" set to Optional ecyription
3. Windows 7 pro is primary client but I'm getting same results from XP

I included screen shot of router and VPN Client

Don't you think you need to add your Internet (external) IP in the Server IP box? Do you have a static or dynamic IP from the ISP?

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

According to the to the dd-wrt doc it should be an IP on the internal network
